I love the sculpture park, its such a fantastic space and my children love it here too. Normally we do the walk around which is about 3 miles but as we were still feeling unwell and it was a very warm muggy day we just stuck to walking around the sculptures. There is a major exhibition on by Jaume Plensa at the moment which meant it was very busy. Before we had a walk around we sat and had some lovely sandwiches (m & s since you ask!) and watched this rather adorable crow hopping back and forth eating our crust crumbs. The children were busy watching some baby moorhens being fed and fussed over by their parents.
These sculptures are outside the underground gallery which we hadn't visited before. The children wanted to touch and feel them but there were lots of old people telling them not too. I think they should be allowed to touch them actually and was quite annoyed, the artist wants them to be interpreted in different ways and I think that would be much more fun and interesting. People moan that children/young adults don't appreciate art and history and then when you take your children to learn about these things they get told off by negative busy bodies!!!
